  1. Perhaps Jair Bolsonaro can shove that tremendous Bigly UV Light up his… and it will go away “like a miracle”

    1. @LRN_News True; that’s why CNN and all these fake news channels are trying to demonize him, like they try with Trump.

    2. New York Times / 3/20/21:Where Europe Went Wrong in Its Vaccine Rollout, [and Why Trump Administration’s Warp Speed won the day.’]

      The calls began in December, as the United States prepared to administer its first batches of Covid-19 vaccine. Even then, it was clear that the European Union was a few weeks behind, and its leaders wanted to know what they could learn from their American counterparts.

      The questions were the same, from President Emmanuel Macron of France, President Ursula von der Leyen of the European Commission, and Alexander De Croo, the prime minister of Belgium.

      “How did you do it?” Dr. Moncef Slaoui, the Trump Administration’s vaccine czar, recalled them asking on the calls. “And what do you think we missed?”

      Since then, the rollout gap between Europe and the United States has only widened, and some of the countries hardest hit early in the pandemic are facing a deadly third wave of infections. France, large parts of Italy, and other regions are back in lockdown. Roughly 20,000 Europeans die of Covid-19 each week.

      Brussels, by comparison, took a conservative, budget-conscious approach that left the open market largely untouched. And it has paid for it.

      In short, the answer today is the same as it was in December, said Dr. Slaoui. The bloc shopped for vaccines like a customer. The United States basically went into business with the drugmakers, spending much more heavily to accelerate vaccine development, testing and production.

      “They assumed that simply contracting to acquire doses would be enough,” recalled Dr. Slaoui, whom President Donald J. Trump hired to speed the vaccine development. “In fact what was very important was to be a full, active partner in the development and the manufacturing of the vaccine. And to do so very early.”

      ‘Not Equipped for a Gunfight’
      The European Union trailed the United States and Britain from the start.

      Washington had already spent billions on clinical trials and manufacturing by the time Europe decided to pool its resources and negotiate as a bloc. In mid-June, the European Commission, the bloc’s executive branch, announced a joint vaccine purchase with a $3.2 billion pot.

      In Washington, Operation Warp Speed, the Trump administration’s vaccine program, had a $10 billion budget. European officials say it’s unfair to compare the two figures because neither amount is a complete picture of all the money spent on vaccines. But there is no dispute that in Washington, officials had decided that money was no object if vaccines could avert the economic cost of a lockdown. Europe, on the other hand, was on a tight budget, so its negotiators chased cheaper doses.

      “Pricing has been important since the beginning,” Sandra Gallina, the E.U.’s main vaccine negotiator, told lawmakers in February. “We are talking about taxpayers’ money.”3⃣

    3. @LRN_News Time and again, Republicans scream about the national debt when a Democrat is in the White House, cleaning up the mess they caused. But when there’s a Republican administration, they couldn’t care less about the debt. When Mitch McConnell was asked about soaring debt and deficits his response was, “It’s disappointing, but it’s not a Republican problem.”

  2. It’s a shame that Bolsonaro is one of the survivors.

    He’s done so much to make problem worse and doesn’t deserve to make it through.

    1. @Don b . Bub bub but but Trump. But but Trump.
      You have a demented racist letting millions pour through our borders un tested and un vetted. You have no problem with this? Had trump did this your panties would be wadded up in a knot and be screaming. Hypocrite.

    2. Lol WHAT!! like displacing deLuna an open communist who has his political enemies killed?!! Lol, hahaha oh and that is more leftist commies lying to you again dummy.

    3. HEADLINE: “Pfizer Demands Nations Put Up Collateral to Cover Vaccine Injury Lawsuits”

      * “Pfizer is demanding countries put up sovereign assets, including bank reserves, military bases and embassy buildings, as collateral for expected vaccine injury lawsuits resulting from its COVID-19 inoculation.
      * Argentina and Brazil have rejected Pfizer’s demands. According to legal experts, Pfizer is abusing its power.
      * In the U.S., vaccine makers already enjoy full indemnity against injuries occurring from the COVID-19 vaccine under the PREP Act. If you’re injured, you’d have to file a compensation claim with the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), which is funded by U.S. taxpayers.
      * A significant problem with the CICP is that it’s administered within the Department of Health and Human Services, which is also sponsoring the COVID-19 vaccination program. This conflict of interest makes the CICP less likely to admit fault with the vaccine.
      * The maximum CICP payout you can receive — even in cases of permanent disability or death — is $250,000 per person, and you first have to exhaust your private insurance policy before the CICP kicks in.”

    4. @M Hall it’s amazing, even now that Trump’s presidency is over these guys can’t get him out of their head

    1. I agree there is No God if you think Skydaddy thunderclapped and farted us into existence you are delusional.

    1. As incompetent as Bolsonaro is, he has been largely ignored by municipal and state authorities, which are leading the fight against the spread of the virus… However, vaccines are still a federal responsibility and Bolsonaro has failed to arrange for that in time…

    2. He’s
      1. Obeying the constitution.
      2. Protecting Brazil’s economy and most importantly the middle class.

      Brazil cannot afford losing between 40-60% of it’s small to medium businesses like the US due to covid measures, unless his plan is to cause a massive deliberate wealth transfer from the middle class to ultra wealthy, eliminating competition and benefiting monopolies, such as was the case in the US. Canada, all places that imposed lockdowns.

    3. @W K Putin refused a second lockdown to protect Russia’s economy, he said unlike the US Russia doesn’t have the wealth to survive a second lockdown.

    4. Don’t trash talk, the brazilian air force, with Bolsonaro orders, are getting more and more vaccine for the population

    1. @Jason Paris do you have any clue whats happening in florida or are you just blaming coronavirus? why dont you actually do research first, also tell us how NY and California are doing?

  3. They have their own ‘Trump’ they’ve been dealing with. Sad to see this on top of all the other damage; the rainforest, the environment, and the indigenous people. I’m sure the list goes on.

    1. @Darmett Bogle maybe they didn’t but I’d bet the government had a lot to do with the FDA rushing the vaccine to the public

    2. @D Z The Pfizer vaccine was developed in Germany by a German company with funding from the German taxpayers, Pfizer came in to do the verification and essential trials as they had the resources

    1. @Deb J Kid, I don’t have coronavirus. Never did I have it and never will. Also, viruses are supposed to spread. This is how nature works.

    2. @boltsoup And I certainly hope you or your loved ones don’t get it.
      Where Covid is concerned is why masks, sanitizing and social distancing etc were recommended. To curtail its spread.

  4. I’m Australian and we have zero cases here atm and we are starting to get the vaccine I think we could wait till last and country’s like Brazil should get them all

    1. @BoiKash Records no that didn’t happen, maybe a fine for breaking the rules , I have a gardening business I was allowed to work

    1. @Mth Av He has shown himself to not be in the pockets of the ultra wealthy, how? By opposing lockdowns, why? because lockdowns GREATLY benefit the ultra wealthy, mega corporations and destroy the middle class, businesses, eliminate competition etc.. This is literally the biggest wealth transfer in human history, the data is out on this, yes this is why all the mainstream news networks are pushing covid propaganda, and mega corporations were the only ones to remain open during lockdown, the mainstream figures all on board with the narrative , the so called “experts” lining their pockets. This is one of the biggest scams in human history.

    2. @Mth Av In fact, I kinda wish I was in Brazil right now to experience some of the freedoms I used to have

    3. @LRN_News No you didn’t understand I want to say that he even had a plain for this situation, I not agre with this lockdowns because this only brings angry and unemployement for the population.
      But Bolsonaro even made a plain to buy vaccine for the cointry and the only precupation that he had is his sons that are being investigat in corrupition.
      I don’t know here do you live, but don’t wish be in Brazil. Here is not the worts contry in the world but we had a lot of problems here and any solution for this problems right now.

    4. @James Sparkman Sabe nem falar o nome do presidente kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk, propaganda pra denegrir presidente alheio é foda

  5. “President” Jair Bolsonaro denies at all costs that we are experiencing a collapse in health, he returned with the quarantine without giving emergency aid, many people are starving. And our doctors are exhausted and the worst of it is that there are people who don’t care about the pandemic. We Brazilians call for help!

    1. @aleti bennet Lol I’m giving you straight facts. Lockdowns are meant to achieve a massive wealth transfer and if there’s actually a pandemic it prolongs it. The CDC released data on this, the lockdowns prolong the outbreak, making it last way longer than it should and of course the elites don’t want to end the lockdowns because they are making a shitload of money.

    2. @LRN_News I pity on u really do u think they need lock down to transfer wealth we r living in a crypto world wake-up, just in 2months 1Lack people have losed their life’s in Brazil still it going to be worst its better now to wake-up from ur dream world and look at th facts going around u ….albs

    3. @aleti bennet During the lockdowns people mainly shopped online and at majorly retailers such as walmart and small businesses were not allowed to remain open which caused a massive wealth transfer; the mega corporations capitalized on it and made trillions in profits while the middle class, small businesses and low income earners lost a lot of money, lost their businesses etc..

      The data is out on this for everyone to see. Lockdown handed the top few more power and control, which is ultimately what the purpose lockdowns is, why is why they keep extending the lockdowns.

      The vaccine agenda is also part of the wealth transfer, they’ve been wanting to vaccinate the global population for a long time and finally they have the opportunity which is a multi trillion dollar business model.
      Always follow the money.

  6. The Brazilian president said “Coronavirus is a cold. Don’t wear a mask”. Everyone expected that to happen, except the Brazilians.

  7. Brazilians voted for Bolsonaro. Hope that those voters learned their lesson. Science is more important than your opinion
